[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Attack” is the name of this photo taken this morning at Quidi Vidi Lake. This immature Bald Eagle is attacking this otter that is eating a large trout. The four sharp claws narrowly missed their mark, luckily for the otter.

It was a great morning for photos of wildlife.

Hello Jim,
Fantastic action well captured with great camera work throughout. I would put my money of the otter though if the eagle didn't kill him out right. Outstanding image Jim thanks for sharing.

Wow! Great action shot Jim. Great focus on both subjects and nicely framed. TFS Trevor
